Kitchen Tools for the Blind

People who are blind can become very good at negotiating the world by touch, but that presents real hazards while cooking, specifically sharp knives and burning heat. Kevin Chiam designed some kitchen products to mitigate these dangers during his final year at the National University of Singapore. You can see that if these came to market, sighted people would use them, too. Chiam explains the design behind the products at his website.  -via reddit

Slicing vegetables should be done with a mandolin. Anything else can be accomplished safely by using the correct technique. The pot cover is interesting. With a modification, it could be made boil-over-proof. There would be a market for that in the sighted community.
